Anthony Fauci lied to the U.S. Congress, and EcoHealth veered wildly out of their lane. Who’s going to be held accountable?
The National Institutes of Health admitted that EcoHealth Alliance – a research partner of the Wuhan Institute of Virology funded by Anthony Fauci – carried out gain-of-function research and failed to report the findings “as was required by the terms of the grant.”
The admission comes in a letter from Principal Deputy Director of the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Lawrence Tabak, in response to Congressman James Comer’s inquiries about a controversial, multi-million-dollar grant from Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) to Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance.
The coronavirus-focused grant ultimately led to U.S. taxpayer dollars funding EcoHealth Alliance’s “longtime collaboration” with the Chinese Communist Party-run lab, believed by many to be the source of COVID-19.
Tabak explains how the “limited experiment described in the final progress report provided by EcoHealth Alliance was testing if spike proteins from naturally occurring bat coronaviruses circulating in China were capable of binding to the human ACE2 receptor in a mouse model. ”
“In this limited experiment, laboratory mice infected with the SHC014 WIV 1 bat coronavirus became sicker than those infected with the WIV1 bat coronavirus. As sometimes occurs in science, this was an unexpected result of the research, as opposed to something that the researchers set out to do,” he added.
